Case Management Tool for Non-formal Education in Youth Work

Description

The project was created because more and more children are falling out of the formal systems. The streets become the main educational environment where they develop their identity with needed attitudes and skills in order to survive. Youth work is confronted with children in different street situations. Many NGO’s, citizen initiatives undertake a lot of action to connect with the children in the streets, to build trustworthy relationships. The project aimed to create a digital tool for personal case management within youth work in non-formal education. It was implemented from 01-09-2017 until 31-08-2018 in Greece, Belgium and Poland. The Coordinator of the project was the Mobile School VZW and the consortium consisted of ARSIS and PRAKSIS (Greece) and CME (Poland). In ARSIS and PRAKSIS, they work with Roma children, trafficked children in the city centre, refugee children in refugee camps and unaccompanied minors. CME works with children and youth who are working unregistered on the streets with the responsibility to sustain their families. It was a one-year Erasmus+ project granted by the European Commission.
